Sarah Turner has secured a film development award in order to undertake a new long term shape shifting film project.
Sarah Turner, Beatrice Gibson and Larissa Sansour have become the latest artists to secure development support through FLAMIN Productions. Selected from over ninety proposals, the artists’ exciting new long-from projects impressed the expert panel and won them the unique opportunity to participate in a funded development phase- an essential period for artists to refine ideas and acquire the skills and contacts to realise work to their best potential.
At the end of the development phase, the three projects will be considered for production support – with £100,000 available to support the successful work.
In addition to their outstanding creative quality, a key characteristic shared by the awarded projects and artists is the potential they have to benefit from the period of mentoring and financial support offered by this development stage. A fact that boosts their chances of securing production funding when the time comes.
Sarah Turner – Public House
Public House fuses fact and fiction in a multi layered exploration of memory, community and social reinvention. Activated in response to the community takeover of the Ivy House pub, London, SE15, this feature length work for cinemas is a shape shifting genre hybrid that moves from observational document to minimalist opera. Interweaving testament, performance poetry and an innovative soundscape that fuses acousmatic composition and verbatim librettos, the film explores individual and cultural memory and its resonance in shaping social spaces.
